That doesn’t make any sense.”

Obama also used the opportunity to once again raise concerns about Trump’s ability to serve as commander-in-chief of the world’s most powerful nation.

“Just listen to what Mr. Trump has to say and make your own judgment with respect to how confident you feel about his ability to manage things like our nuclear triad,” Obama warned. “This is serious business.”
